Police seek shooter in north Toledo double homicide

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo Police are searching for the person who shot and killed two people in north Toledo Monday evening.

Investigators say Darnell Green, 23, and John Hill, 25, were found shot near the corner of Pearl Street and Franklin Avenue around 8:15 p.m. Monday.

As of now, police have no suspects and no leads, but say there could be more than one person responsible.

"Whoever did this did a horrible, horrible thing, shooting into a house full of people like that. We need to get somebody like that off our streets," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan.

Police say whoever it was had their sights set on the north Toledo home. 

"I don't think that whoever did this just randomly picked a house out. I think that they had some reason to, or some problem with some people that were associated with the house," explained Heffernan.

Shattered glass is a violent reminder of what happened.

"The door was open, storm door was closed. At least one, maybe more shooters approached the house, fairly close up to the house, and started shooting," Heffernan said.

Neighbors say they heard rapid shots fired and then saw a male in dark clothing running away.
